LOUISVILLE, Ky. (FOX 56) — A Louisville celebrity chef is opening a restaurant for one weekend only.
Diners will be treated to a five-course meal on the roof of the Muhammad Ali Center from 7 p.m. to midnight on Friday, May 5, and Saturday, May 6.
Ferguson left his mark on Food Network’s “Tournament of Champions,” but he’s taking his talent back to the Bluegrass State, and who better to cook while we celebrate the champions of horse racing?
“No matter what I do outside of Kentucky, the biggest events you’ll ever see me do will be back home,” Ferguson said. “We’re giving people art on a plate. We’re giving people a mosaic of food.”
The super chef described his food’s flavors as “unconventional urban cuisine,” and said his brightest decision was to bring high-end fine dining to short-order cooking in Louisville.
“This is a place to get an experience for Derby where you’ll have something to talk about when you leave and go back home,” said the celebrity chef.
Tickets are $500 per person, but a portion of proceeds from Round 149 will support students participating in the Muhammad Ali Center‘s youth programs. These students are seeking to follow in the footsteps of Muhammad Ali’s legacy by volunteering and exploring lessons about social change, leadership, and justice.
“What they’re doing here is amazing, what they represent, and I just wanted to be a part of it,” said Ferguson.
You can watch Darnell “SuperChef” Ferguson host the primetime competition “SuperChef Grudge Match” on Food Network. The show strives to settle two long-standing personal and professional food feuds in one-round.
